About the book
Negotiating Conflict in Lebanon: Bordering Practices in a Divided Beirut (Bloomsbury, 2019) is the culmination of Mohamad's practice-led research project; a nine-year investigation into sectarian and political struggles in Lebanon.
It employs art processes to investigate everyday borders as immaterial processes and practices. The book considers how artistic research can itself be seen as a form of a critical spatial practice and, in particular, a bordering practice.
Mohamad Hafeda is a senior lecturer of architecture at Leeds Beckett University, and a founding member of the collective Febrik. Mohamad obtained his PhD in Architectural Design from The Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL in 2015.
